The Milestone Presentation Day provides a valuable opportunity for graduate researchers to present their work to an audience of faculty members and fellow students.
Melbourne Law School's Milestone Presentation Day for graduate researchers will be held on Wednesday 26 February 2020.
The Milestone Presentation Day comprises three different kinds of presentations:
1. Work in progress presentations
All MPhil and PhD candidates are invited to make a 20-minute presentation on some aspect of their thesis (with 10 minutes for questions afterwards). This will give you a chance to discuss a part of your thesis on which you would like to obtain feedback.
2. PhD and MPhil confirmation presentations
PhD candidates are required to make a 20-minute presentation on their thesis (with 10 minutes for questions afterwards) towards the end of their first year of candidature (or towards the end of the second year for part-time candidates).
MPhil candidates are required to make a 15-minute presentation on their thesis (with 10 minutes for questions afterwards) by the six-month mark (full-time) of their candidature.
3. PhD and MPhil completion presentations
MPhil and PhD candidates are required to present an overview of their entire thesis 3-6 months before submitting. The presentation should include the 'objectives, methods, findings and significance' of the research. 40 minutes are allowed for each completion presentation plus 20 minutes for questions and discussion.
